Hallucinogen Persistent Perception Disorder (HPPD) is considered an “uncommon” disorder described in association with use of hallucinogens such as LSD, mescaline and psilocybin. Despite multiple mentions of persistence of visual disturbances reported by users on online forums, clinicians may not be aware of this complication. There have been few descriptions of HPPD in association with use of new psychoactive substances (such as 2C-E). Increasing use of these designer stimulants places greater numbers at risk for psychiatric morbidities including HPPD. Here we report the first documented case of HPPD due to high dose 2C-E and blunting of symptoms with addition of lamotrigine.

Keywords: Stimulants, hallucinogen, psychoactive, phenylethylamines.
